CARAVAN SALON DUSSELDORF shows "Green Caravanning"

Posted by Brigitte Cox on Fri, Aug 27, 2010 @ 14:53 PM

RV Industry Products good to Resources and Environment

caravan salon postcardAt CARAVAN SALON DÜSSELDORF 2010, (August 28 to September 5 in Düsseldorf), the Caravanning Industry Association will present information on environmentally friendly travelling with caravans and RVs in its "Green Caravanning" presentation. Diesel particulate filters were already presented at CARAVAN SALON DÜSSELDORF 2009 and have meanwhile been retrofitted in several older RV models. In addition there are many other ways to save energy and reduce emissions. With the special "Green Caravanning" show, CARAVAN SALON DÜSSELDORF 2010 offers a market overview of currently available environmentally friendly products and components, as well as a forecast of green products that will be hitting the market in the near future.

We’ll be looking at continuous weight optimization of RVs and improvement of wind resistance, as well as energy-efficient, low-emission engines. High-mileage diesel engines with common rail injection are standard in new RVs, while older engines are achieving the values necessary for the green placard thanks to the new particulate filters. Alternative power trains are also a topic: A new hybrid solution for RVs will be shown during the "Green Caravanning" presentation.

THE SHOWMOBILE Shows Environmentally Friendly Accessories

In the centre of the "Green Caravanning" presentation stands a specially modified RV that really packs a wallop: This ten-year old vehicle has been retrofitted with state-of-the-art accessories that serve to protect the environment or reduce energy consumption. Next to a diesel particulate filter, the vehicle received a rear seat heater with oxi-cat, as well as a conventional methanol fuel cell and a newly developed LPG fuel cell. But that's not all: There's also a refrigerator and a stove, both extremely energy-efficient yet powerful, energy-saving long-life LED lamps and a toilet with a ceramic inlay that uses very little water when flushed. The installation of tinted windows lowers the inside temperature by approximately 6 degrees on sunny days, saving air conditioning energy. Solar technology has been utilized successfully in the RV industry for quite some time: In addition to the solar satellite system that will be shown, a prototype of an innovative solar awning has been installed on the show vehicle. A lightweight chassis contributes to weight optimization, as does a lightweight door that weighs in at a mere 12 kg.

Caravanning is an Especially Environmentally Friendly Holiday

caravan salonRV holidays to certified eco-camping campsites are especially environmentally friendly. The Ecocamping Association has taken up the cause of environmental protection and nature preservation, safety and quality management at campsites, and consults and certifies campsite wishing to implement a quality management system. To date 224 European campsites have been awarded the Ecocamping Environmental Management Certificate.
